11 of us got the pleasure of attending this tour with the amazing John. Everything about this tour went up and above what we had expected. The platters were plentiful, the service was amazing & John accommodated for our large group effortlessly. The value for money for this tour was well worth it! We would definitely do this again. Thanks again John for all your knowledge & for taking such good care of us all.

We had a really wonderful afternoon with John. There were just 4 of us on the tour (besides John) so an intimate group which was lovely - had some great conversations, drank some excellent wine and beer, and had a very informative tour of the area. Thank you John for your great commentary and tiki tour around Napier and environs - we absolutely loved it.

Thanks John for a wonderful afternoon. I found the wine tasting great but your information about Napier and the history was outstanding. My family come from this area and it was great to learn more. Thanks again

Hi Saandh... Thank you for your great review. I am so pleased that we were able to deliver more than promised. As you know, We took you around all the hidden areas, the areas that the general public don't get to explore. This, I believe makes the tour. Thanks again for taking the time to comment. - John

These guys are super amazing. So accommodating, informative and so much fun. Two van loads of crazy kids and mum. Had the best time, loads of laughs and the owners were just so awesome. Nothing was a problem and even sent back items left on the bus without even charging. Highly recommend! You will not be disappointed. Thanks guys. Creating beautiful memories 🥂🍻😍

Such a good day out! A must-do if travelling to the Hawkes Bay. The guide John is very knowledge, funny and such a nice guy! Between the beaming sun, the sunny sights and the local drinks it was perfect - cannot recommend enough.
